How To Buy Tickets

Winter 2023 Lecture Series


TAL-KW’s Winter 2023 lecture series, “What’s On Your Plate?”, focuses on Canada’s food systems.  Over 8 weeks, our guest lecturers will explore topics such as regional food strategy; organic agriculture; the role of migrant workers; global food security; and agri-food innovations.  Read about our presenters and their lecture topics here

Lectures will be presented virtually on Thursdays (1:30-3:00 pm ET) beginning on January 12, 2023 and running for 8 weeks up to and including March 2, 2023.  From the comfort of your home, you will be able to listen to our experts, watch their slides on your device, and interact with them through your questions and comments.  Our lectures are presented live.  For copyright, technical and other reasons, they are not recorded for later viewing.    

Consider purchasing a TAL-KW ticket as a holiday gift!

If you’d like to give a TAL-KW ticket to a friend, just email the TAL-KW Registrar after you purchase the ticket, and provide us with the recipient’s name and email address.  

Technical requirements  

The lectures are being delivered to you using “Zoom” webinar technology.  You will need a computer with audio speakers, reliable access to the internet, and an email address.  A tablet or smart phone will also work, but smaller screen sizes will restrict the extent to which you are able to see the speaker and/or slides.  Technical support will be available upon request.

How To Purchase Your Winter 2023 Tickets


Ticket sales for the entire 8-week series can be purchased through Centre in the Square, up until January 26, 2023.  Tickets to individual lectures will not be available.  Because the lectures will be held virtually, we will be unable to sell tickets “at the door”.  

We encourage you to take advantage of our early bird ticket price of $50 (including HST), which will be available until December 31, 2022.  After that, ticket prices go up to $60 (including HST) for the series.  

The following options to purchase tickets are available: *

  • Online: Use this link to access the Centre in the Square’s KW Tickets page and follow the instructions.  (Alternatively, you can go directly to the Centre in the Square’s website and click on the “Buy Tickets” button in the top right-hand corner.)


  • Phone: Call the Centre in the Square box office (519-578-1570 or 1-800-265-8977).


  • In Person: Visit the Centre in the Square box office at 101 Queen Street North, Kitchener. 

The on-line and phone options require a credit card.  Cheques can be used in person at the box office.  No paper tickets will be issued. 

* Please note that should there be any changes to COVID-19 restrictions, Centre in the Square’s ability to offer phone and in person sales could be impacted.  

Joining the Zoom webinars

When you purchase a ticket from Centre in the Square, you will be asked for an email address.  A few days before the first lecture, Centre in the Square will email you instructions on how to attend the virtual lecture series, so it’s important that they have your current email address.  TAL-KW will also be sending lecture reminders to that same email address one or two days before each lecture. 

Note:  If you purchase your ticket online or by phone, you should receive a ticket purchase confirmation email from Centre in the Square.  If you do not receive that email, try checking your junk/spam/trash folders, Promotions tab for Gmail users, or double-check your email adress with the Centre in the Square box office.
